·        H.B. SWANZY in May 17, 1924 Notes and Queries shared some of his note of the lists of the Militia of Co. Cavan, since the old Militia lists had perished in the destruction of the Dublin Records Office. One of the names from the list of officers in the September 24, 1702 list was Captain Henry PALMER: probably the high Sheriff, 1680. John Palmer, of Dublin, gent, in his will, dated May 25th, 1715, proved in the diocese of Kilmore, September 9, 1715, states his father, Henry Palmer, Junior, and his grandfather, Henry Palmer, senior, were jointly bound to Edward Ellis of Ballyhady, County Cavan, gent for £100.

·        NOTE: There are a number of mentions of both PALMER & JACKSON in other memorials. Of particular interest are the memorials linking Enoch PALMER, a founder in Dublin,  in 1713 to Michael JACKSON, clothier of Dublin. Enoch’s niece was Michael JACKSON’s wife. Enoch PALMER was a son of William and a brother of a Samuel PALMER. Then in 1801, Memorial: 535-606-35354a Robert JACKSON of Grange included a reference to: Thomas PALMER son of John PALMER of Glenacurra in Kings.
